HOSPICE ADDS A NEW MEDICAL DIRECTOR

In February, Dr. David Sears, one of Heritage’s beloved Medical Directors retired. Replacing him will be Dr. Eric Metzler who also works as Medical Director for Good Samaritan’s Manzano del Sol Village. Dr. Metzler has practiced Family Medicine for 4 years in Massachusetts, then 19 years in rural Maine before coming to New Mexico to study Geriatrics and Hospice Medicine. Since 2010, he has worked in local nursing facilities and hospices and is eager to offer his wide experience to Heritage Hospice. He has a passion for coordinating care and working closely with the hospice team to fully understand the unique condition of each and every patient. We are very lucky and excited to have Dr. Metzler as part of our team. Dr. Metzler will also be working closely with Dr. Belyn Schwartz. Dr. Schwartz is an integral part of the Hospice team and has been working as one of Heritage’s Medical Directors since early 2017.
